Playing With Words

Hangout with Alice SARMIENTO (Fellow)

© Alice Sarmiento

Newly arrived in Büchsenhausen, Fellow Alice SARMIENTO will set up a board and a table in the “Lab”. Through a series of word association games, puzzles, and just hanging out and getting to know her audience more closely, she invites the public to join her in building a vocabulary (and eventually a glossary) around this contemporary moment of reckoning with manliness, masculinity, monumentality, and of course, memes.

Playing With Words will take place right before the artist talk and discussion The Chaos on the Ground with Lyra Garcellano (artist) and Alice Sarmiento (15.00, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen & online).

Alice Sarmiento (*1985; Manila, PH) is a writer, independent curator, and animal welfare worker. She has written extensively on topics such as the representation of the Filipina labor diaspora in contemporary art, the cultural ramifications of Duterte’s war on drugs, and how these phenomena relate to a feminist future. Alice was an awardee in the 2015 edition of the Japan Foundation Asia Center’s curatorial development program and a 2019 fellow in Cultural Journalism at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart. In 2021, she was among the residents of the Young Curators Residency Program of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino Italy.
